    Is it possible to set a password to protect entries?

    Asked by teachlearngrow on February 07, 2016 at 11:23 AM

    Hi, 

    We were just wondering if it would be possible to secure the entries for specific forms so that only certain people are able to view the information people have submitted if we have told them the password. 

    I recognise that we can create sub-user accounts to give access to forms to a specific group of people. However, I just want to check to see if we can also create a password somewhere so that people on the sub-user account can edit the form itself without having access to information that people have submitted.

     

    Thanks, 

    Deion

    Unfortunately, we do not have such feature. However, there's a workaround for that but this isn't secure since the defined text or password can be checked in the form source code but of course only the advanced user can do this.

    So the workaround is to create a show/hide condition that shows all the fields once the entered value on a textbox matches on the condition.

    Example:

    Create a condition by clicking the Conditions button then SHOW/HIDE FIELD

    Here's a sample condition base on the demo form below:
